Lighthouse Arts, Brighton. 7th-20th September 2015, 11am-5pm.
FAMILIARS is an immersive installation that materialises the presence, function,
and fragility of the unseen logistical infrastructures which underpin the modern
world, yet are often coded as separate to society.
Exploiting Brighton’s presence and location in this infrastructure, the piece
creates a mappable representation by directly intercepting logistical signals
broadcast locally by air, sea, and train cargo transport and transmuting the
raw data into ambisonics and projected visualisations. These facets invite
exploration by the audience, creating intimacy and familiarity with a system
that is designed to be invisible, and only noticed when it malfunctions or fails.
